Peachy Keen Kale Salad (+ a Handy How To Video!)

It’s no secret that I like kale.

I’m surprised I haven’t bought one of those “Eat More Kale” shirts yet!

It can get boring to eat kale the same way all the time (juice from 2 lemons + 1-2 T olive oil + a few hefty shakes of nooch + a sprinkle of sea salt + black pepper massaged into the kale leaves), so I like to change it up throughout the year and try new recipes to keep things exciting.

Check out the video below to see how you can quickly and easily “destem” kale as you prep this salad 🙂

This salad is SO easy to make and gave me an excuse to use the sweet, juicy and flavor-filled local peaches that were in our Hometown Harvest bag this week.

The basic ingredients are kale, peaches, and red onions. Easy, right? The dressing isn’t much more than that – another peach, olive oil, water and apple cider vinegar (whose health benefits I’ve raved about before in this post!).

Make sure you let the kale sit for at least 30 minutes to soak in all the flavors. We stored ours in the fridge overnight, and the flavors came together beautifully for dinner the next day.

You have to try it for yourself – it’s so yummy and will be a hit if you bring it to a summer party or cookout!
